It's not surprising that Tokyo restaurants boast some serious gourmet credentials. What may be surprising is the sheer quantity of restaurants you'll pass walking through any Tokyo neighborhood. From the everywhere soba and udon shops to famous ramen shops with queues around the block, it's hard to miss the good eats all around you. Akasaka Ramen is one of Tokyo's famous ramen chains. Maru-kin has locations all over Tokyo, bringing standard "Hakata tonkotsu" - Fukuoka-style ramen made from pork bones - to eager locals. The "jou" in Tsukemen-ya Jou means 10 to the 28th power, perhaps to suggest the surprising amount of noodles they serve up on plates alongside bowls of savory dipping soup. Tummy's Grill looks like one of the many country inns that are littered all over the Japanese countryside. If you're hungry in Tokyo (or central Yokohama), you'll find more than enough restaurants, cheese shops, wine bars and bakeries to will satisfy your cravings.
